Like sitcom sisters Laverne and Shirley, Thelma and Louise are back in action.

The San Antonio Zoo welcomed a two-headed turtle on June 18 and named her after the dynamic duo in a cheeky nod to the 1991 Oscar-winning movie of the same name.

Despite the mutation, the Texas cooter seems to have a good head (or two!) on her shoulders. She swims and walks normally, zoo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike tells the Associated Press, and zoo experts don't predict any health issues for the turtle.

Now who else feels inspired to re-watch the classic road movie?
